Event-by-event viscous hydrodynamics is combined with heavy quark energy loss models to compute heavy flavor flow cumulants v2{2}, v3{2}, and v2{4} as well as the nuclear modification factors of D0 and B0 mesons in PbPb collisions at 2.76 TeV. Our results indicate that bottom quarks can flow as much as charm quarks in the pT range 8–30 GeV.
